Momo Minamoto is a shy teenager who simply wants to do good in the world. Her dream is to follow in her police officer father's footsteps and support law and order. And just like him, she has a very unique ability: her senses are much more refined than those of any average person. A simple lick will enable her to determine what someone is feeling.

One night, as she admires the landscape, Momo sees suspicious shades moving in the distance. After learning that those shades were spies, she is recruited by their captain Yuki Hanzoumon, a senior at her school. The members of their secret agency, called the Tsukikage, also have the power to gain strength after ingesting spices.

Release the Spyce is an action-packed spy series about the Tsukikage's missions as they fight in the shadows to protect the city from crime while keeping up with their high school life.

There are some aspects or happenings that are quickly disposed of with some ready explanation and you are just supposed to go with it. But there will also be a lot of scenes that will hit you right in the feels ...

There's little reason for me to enjoy this show, but I did. The concept is simple. Replace James Bond with a team of cute anime girls that can hulk out eating spices. That's exactly what you're getting here. However the show really embraced it's concept and ran with it, giving you a fun ride.

So, the story for this anime is wrought with spy tropes. You see everything coming from a mile away, but the point of the story for this series was clearly to get you from set piece to set piece. The humor is prevalent but rarely more than just okay. ...

I really can't bring myself to like this anime. There seems to be little reason why the girls are so overpowered as compared to regular human beings...because they are supposed to be regular human beings. Regardless of what you say about training methods, it simply feels cheesy and cheap, with no proper foreshadowing towards any of the characters' so called hidden abillities/potential.

I get that this is an anime that really just isn't meant to be taken with any sense of realism, but at the very least make things look somewhat believable. At least Black Widow's fighting style in the movies looked more believable than ...
